DESCRIPTION:
(from Syfy's press release, May 2018) SYFY today announced a second season pickup of KRYPTON, the untold Superman story based on DC characters from Warner Horizon Scripted Television. KRYPTON, which has averaged 1.8 million viewers L3 per week to date, is SYFY's most-watched debut season among total viewers for an original series since Ascension in 2014, and the most-watched season for any scripted series on the network since Defiance in 2015. With the can't-miss Season 1 finale airing this Wednesday, May 23 at 10/9c, KRYPTON's second season is expected to return in 2019. KRYPTON is set two generations before the destruction of Superman's home planet. The series follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel's grandfather, as a young man who is faced with a life and death conflict - save his home planet or let it be destroyed to restore the fate of his future grandson. In Season 1, with Krypton's leadership in disarray and the House of El ostracized, Seg found himself in a difficult position: redeem his family's honor and protect the ones he loves, while being challenged by familiar DC characters Brainiac and Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange.
